Plot
When Eva (Louis-Dreyfus), a masseuse with an array of narcissistic and self-absorbed clients, bumps into mild TV archivist Albert (Gandolfini) at a party, there's little sign their edgy chemistry will lead to a relationship - or that her new friend, an acid-tongued poet (Catherine), is his ex.


Review
Enough Said

Nicole Holofcener’s funniest, most likable film to date, Enough Said charts the May to December relationship between Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ neurotic masseuse Eva and James Gandolfini’s gentle TV archivist Albert with a keen eye and a wise heart. The spin is that one of Louis-Dreyfus’ clients — a haughty Catherine Keener — is Albert’s ex, and constantly bad-mouths Eva’s new beau. Forget the gimmick; this skewers the tenderness, hesitancies and confusions of the dating game, with smart, sensitive writing and terrific performances from Louis-Dreyfus (who should do more movies) and the late Gandolfini, perfect in a rare regular-schlub role.


Verdict
Sharp, generous, funny, warm and grown up, Enough Said is a charming, big-hearted movie and a fitting valediction to a much-mourned actor.
